Personal Safety Issues

It is recommended that you talk to the PFA, a trusted member of Club staff, your parents/guardians or an LFE Regional Officer about any personal safety issues you may be experiencing.

As part of Safeguarding Children – The FA, an initiaitve that seeks to ensure someone at every club in the country is aware of child protection and best practice, The FA also has a Whistle Blowing Policy. This is ‘an early warning system’ to reveal and raise concerns over misconduct or malpractice within an organisation. Any young person with concerns can use “whistle-blowing” by contacting The FA Case Management Team on 0207 745 4787.
